New Bronco, with optional GOAT, and Sasquatch package that includes 35” muds, bead lock rims and front and rear lockers. Colours like Antimatter blue, Area 51 grey and starting at £24K in the US...

Lots of demountable panels, modular roof.

Stuff I don't understand: no leaf springs?!

Automatic transfer box, rock crawler gear, various ride heights.

Lots of evidence of off road thinking in the design talk.

But, I suspect, lots of electronics and other vulnerabilities.

Interesting....

Even the Ineos offering will have to have electrickery in it, just to meet current regs. 

I like the Bronco, but it is a lifestyle vehicle still, just with more off-road pretension than the Pretender.

There's electronics and there's electronics.

Some are well designed for longevity, with failure prone components easily accessable, and a limp home mode. Good documentation and access to diagnostics at reasonable cost also help.

Stock 35s, likely be able to fit 37s by removing the arch trims....

Defender? What's that?

Whether it comes here probably depends on if Ford plans to sell it in India. If they do, then that will justify RHD version and so it may come here.

Thank you for clarifying Steve, though I suspect not tough enough for Waitrose's car park 😉

Do the Chinese put the steering wheel on the correct side? Interesting!

We might, but like the Wrangler it will be in limited numbers, limited spec, limited options and wAAAAY over priced. And probably not for a few years.

Australia already take the Ranger in RHD form, what with no vehicle manufacturing going on there any more, it has weirdly made it more likely we will get RHD versions of yank cars, the Mustang is a prime example.

Just makes you want to punch Gerry, doesn't it ?

he's not even worthy of a punch. a bitch slap would be more appropriate, followed by a solid kick to the nads

They drive on the right, they sit on the left, much like their politics.

I'll settle for that as long as you're happy Naks.
